Every time I make a promise to myself about posting regularly here, something unexpected comes up and I am dormant for a while. I am trying to be regular . I have no drafts in my dashboard. I just post when I make a new dish.
We are in the process of cleaning up our pantry and crisper. Whoa , what a disorganized shopper I am ! I found a bag of Peas both yellow and Pigeon peas, some Ras el hanout a potato, a carrot , a stalk of celery and what not … We normally dont spend a lot of time for dinner , we’d rather spend that time eating or relaxing . I prefer one pot meals . This soup was not well thought. I randomly threw in everything into the pot and lo a spicy, steaming hot and unexpectedly tasty soup emerged. I had to post it !
Soup is something I can have any time of the year , whatever the weather might be. Somehow , a huge pot of soup simmering on the stove , brings me a feeling of being cozy , warm and content . The past couple of months we have been living on home made soups ,although Ive had hardly any time to click pictures , but I must say Ive tried quite a few soup and shorba recipes. I will post them as and when I try them again.
Sweet Madhuram of eggless cooking has tagged me for a meme for 10 things I hate , I have a few Pet peeves/ things that Id rather not do that I’d like to share …
Today was a long day . K and I were just running around to complete our weekly chores and helping a friend set up their new barbecue grill . The weather was sweltering hot and I staggered home with a splitting headache. I was adamant about not eating out. Dear K, made a good cuppa masala chai and I set to do the magic in my kitchen with a recipe from Ashwini of Food for Thought. Her blog has always been a sight to visit. Crisp writing and clean , simple pictures. I decided to kill two birds in one shot by sending this to MBP and also Your recipe rocks. I made a couple of changes to our liking and the result was a blast!
